Participants draw up financial plans for a case study project and receive individual feedback from the trainer. The trainer presents case studies of budgets made and implemented for cultural projects in various fields in which he/she has been directly involved.
The course has an informal format, with learners being encouraged to get to know each other, exchange experiences and find practical solutions for the projects they are working on or are about to implement.
